Motor insurance is compulsory as this pays the liability of the driver at fault. So you cannot claim for bodily injury from your own insurance as you would be claiming against yourself - but if your motor policy was comprehensive you can claim from your own insurer for vehicle damage - subject to an excess. See the related link entitled "car driver injury claims" for a full explanation as to when a car driver can claim and when a car driver is considered liable.

No. Insurance follows the vehicle primary, driver secondary. Since the driver is at fault and there is no coverage under the vehicle itself, the drivers policy would pay for any bodily injury or property damage he may have caused. Therefore uninsured motorist coverage would not apply. The only way that driver would have coverage for himself is if he already had Med Pay coverage on his own policy.
